Diving Headlong into Contemporary Art !
At two Digital Art Workshops held at SHOUT Contemporary [26 November and 3 December] together with the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, teen girls from 10 different schools in Hong Kong dove headlong into the exciting world of contemporary art!
The Form 2-6 students enjoyed a guided tour of SHOUT Contemporary’s “Half The Sky, The Sky Is The Limit” exhibit of 12 artists on women’s interlacing roles at home and in society. A portion of the exhibition sales proceeds will be donated to the Foundation. They also explored the connection between art and technology through a crash course in Sketchbook and Procreate digital art programmes led by local artists #Offgod and #winki.cho.
Digital technology today forms an important part of the creative process for many artists, and we encourage students to try their hand at it – and enjoy discovering where it takes them!
Thank you to the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups for its support, and to our amazing instructors – young artists, some teen girls themselves – for inspiring our students to use traditional and cutting-edge art forms to express themselves and their perspectives on the world!
